How can we improve Power BI?

Add Folders To Organize Reports On

RIght now, on, there is no ability to organize reports, dashboards, etc into folders. If you have a lot of content or users, this gets messy quickly.

Please add the ability to organize into folders (and secure those folders separately)

    This is absolutely a must have feature. I am with PowerBI for 3 weeks and have been trying to organise the BI content since last week, just realised that it does not allow me to create label or folder and organise the existing content by either drag- and-drop or copy/paste. I would like to have folders mapping the business units, e.g. marketing folder/label for keeping all the marketing reports/dashboards and so forth.

    Really missing this. We're getting a lot of new clients (yay) and it's making powerBI less organised (boo)

    The list of Datasets,Reports are getting long. Super nice to have a hierarchy to organise. very needed, thx!

    This is a must have! If we have tens of dashboards how will we be able to organise things? It would be a really lousy UX

    Simple feature, but very needed. For testing scenarios it is ok. But if you have more than 10 dashboards, it is getting totaly messy

    I'd be fine with something lighter-weight than folders, e.g. let me mark some dashboards as FAVORITES that show in up a separate list, or auto-group them by author/sharer/etc.

    I really want this feature. At the moment, every employee in our organisation's got a dashboard with personal information and statistics from dynamics. It's getting really messy...

    I agree with this comment, we need to organize reports into folders, thanks so much!!

  • JQ Wang commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We need this feature to be able to provide a standard reports menu for sanctioned reports/dashboards. any BI vendor offers this capability!

    And if that folder also identifies its from a Content pack even better. The ability to have an image on the folder would be good. Love the addition of the image to content pack.

    As a user, I would like to be able to create folders to organize reports. I use Power BI for analysis, but also for operational ad-hoc reporting, and I have quickly reached a disorganized state in the UI with my reporting needs (as few as just 20 reports will negatively impact my experience if I can't organize them effectively).
